This shouldn't be in the math section, it should be in the trick section. The question is based on trickery, as it's a commonly accepted mathmatical concept that any number that divides "evenly" by another number results in an integer. To use trickery in the phrasing of the question makes this no longer a "math" teaser.

I agree.

It would make too obvious of a trick question though. I think it's fine here.

I got it! I figured that all the numbers can be evenly divided because I took evenly to mean the same number twice. 3 being 1.50 and 1.50. They are even.

Wow. Just wow.

If the numbers are three and five, it is not evenly being divided by two.

They are equal, not even. This would be better as a trick question, but it still is a twisting of the normal use of the word "evenly" where it applies mathematically

Very shaky concepts. It certainly wouldn't work if one were dividing lightbulbs.

Trickery.

I got the expected answer only because if it wasn't the answer then this couldn't possibly be a teaser.
